Leonard Bernstein, conductor

BERNSTEIN CONDUCTS BERNSTEIN is the ultimate tribute to the legendary composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein – specially created to celebrate the 90th anniversary of his birth in 2008.

This 10-disc set includes all of Bernstein’s own definitive recordings of his greatest works as a composer – many recorded during his historic years as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic – from his first exuberant Broadway musical On the Town and the explosive Symphonic Dances from West Side Story to his heartbreakingly beautiful “Kaddish” Symphony and the radiant hope of the Chichester Psalms– as well as the complete world premiere recording of his Mass.
